Rough skin texture, lack of moisture, uneven skin tone, crow’s feet, laugh lines and wrinkles… These are just some of the key age markers that inevitably show up due to accrued environmental assaults, hormonal changes, slower cell renewal, as well as collagen and elastin breakdown.
It’s possible to keep skin looking younger and glowing with the right skincare, such as Lancôme’s Absolue Precious Cells Day Cream. This easily absorbed face moisturiser plumps and hydrates to reduce the look of fine lines and deep furrows, giving you a smoother skin texture. Plus, it has broad-spectrum SPF15 to protect against UV damage.
All these benefits are thanks to a combination of Dermal-Reconstruction Complex (powered by extracts of Swiss apple and linseed) and Pro-Xylane (an exclusive sugar-protein hybrid that helps skin retain moisture). They work hand in hand to supposedly strengthen skin and improve its regenerative properties.
On top of that, the formula boasts an exclusive blend of rose distillate derived from the Damask Rose through a cold distillation technology. This ingredient is said to have skin-regenerative and -healing properties.
The cream also has CO2 rose extract from the Centifolia rose, also known as Rose de Mai. Handpicked annually in the month of May – hence its moniker – this rose hybrid is specifically chosen for its ability to soothe skin.
Here’s what loyal users of Lancôme’s Absolue range have to say about the Absolue Precious Cells Day Cream.
"I experimented with lots of skincare before I finally I found what I was looking for with Lancôme’s Absolue range. I am not fond of products that leave a sticky and uncomfortable feeling, so I really appreciate how rich yet silky-smooth this day cream is. After using it, I saw an immediate difference, especially in how lifted my skin felt, and how smooth and moisturised it became. Most of the time, I’m busy taking care of my son, so I rely on this product to give me the confidence boost I need to look and feel good – with minimal time and effort. I’ve been told that I don’t look my age, and I truly believe that my skincare routine plays an important part in that."

"I love the Lancôme Absolue range because it doesn’t cause any allergies or breakouts on my skin. I’ve been using it for over a decade, and I highly recommend this day cream as I’ve noticed that my skin looks brighter and feels more lifted from all the years of usage. It is also such a pleasure to use as the day cream has a silky, luxurious texture that absorbs easily into my skin. I love its soothing scent too. I’ve received countless compliments from friends and loved ones about my radiant complexion, and I always tell them it’s thanks to Lancôme’s Absolue range!"
– Molly Yeo, 67 years old
"Lancôme’s National Makeup Artist, Lina Tock, introduced me to the iconic Absolue range 10 years ago, and I’ve never looked back since. My skin feels softer and my complexion glows – my friends frequently ask me about it. What I love most is that Lancôme uses rose stem cells in the series: I adore roses so, for me, it’s the ideal natural ingredient in my skincare. I would say that the range is a must-try for women who feel that they are experiencing premature skin ageing or if their skin has lost its natural, healthy glow. The products may be slightly pricier, but trust me, it’s worth every dollar spent when you see your rosy, dewy complexion in the mirror."
